      It's a rather large bird.

      I honestly thought you were having a laugh & something like this would be expected:

      lol - It wasn't a native pigeon if it is of the same family. It was actually in a zoo.

      Luzon Bleeding-heart Dove.

      Which zoo? Was it Bristol? Though I think there are some closer to home at Bird World.

      Thank you seawright.

      No where too exotic I'm afraid. It was Newquay Zoo.

      The most dangerous part was the playground. It was full of savage little beasts. I didn't get any photos of them as I had to hide my camera as they would take anything there.

      Here's a couple of other animals at the Zoo that I suspect a lot more people will recognise...
